If you're hiring, then they provide cars seats at a small fee. I don't think you will have bought a car online so would the car seats be required immediately on arrival? Failing that, I have picked up car seats that members have bought on ebay (considerable saving) for other members, and met them at airport with same. You can buy online and arrange for someone to meet you with them.

 

Good luck

Can you not take yours on the plane, we pared ours down to just the booster (left the back part at the airport) and it went in with the bags. Not ideal but it did us for a while and we had one as soon as we were landed.

Thanks guys for all the suggestions!

Only Australian car seats are legal in Oz theonetruechris and my kids are 3 and 2 so only booster is not an option.

We will be renting the car, but the seats are subject to availability and in my experience there is always a problem with them, once I was given a booster seat for 4 months old baby!!so I am afraid I will get stuck again

i will check out the stores Jo mentioned and hopefully something will be close by.

Hi get into your car and drive down to Toombul shopping centre (depending on time of arrival). there is a Target in the centre and will have car seats for your young children. the centre is easy to get to from the airport and only 10 mins drive down airport drive and along the east/west arterial.

 

hope this helps and welcome to oz, hope your move goes well.
